What I Did Last Summer

After months of swapping and purchasing via etsy and ebay, last June I cut into some precious bits of Flea Market Fancy. And then I got distracted. So here is a UFO that sat neglected for nearly a year. With any luck, it will get finished up this week.

Flea Market Fancy Quilt Top

The pattern is Saltwater Taffy by Fig Tree. I love the unique inner border shape. If you try this pattern, there are a TON of bias edges. I recommend using the starch when sewing with the stretchy borders. It helped a ton.

My little block from my previous post measures in at exactly 5″. Each HST before being stitched together is right about 1 1/8″ square. And I am making more. I figure I have enough scraps for 4 more blocks.

Another little block

Nine of my awesome readers guessed the size right! And of those, the winner, as chosen by my husband, is:
Winner Winner

Congrats, Karen! I am sending you an email and we’ll get this charm bundle off to you shortly.
